Meet Your Community Helpers

Meet Your Community Helpers

Saturday, September 25 | 2:00-5:00pm

You’re invited to an outdoor event at Armatage Park with the helpers that serve our community including the Minneapolis Fire Department, Solid Waste & Recycling, USPS, MPD, EMTs and more! There will be educational tables for both adults and kids, an interactive neighborhood equity station, demonstrations, and TRUCKS to check out.

Don’t miss this chance to get your pressing recycling questions answered, learn about fire safety, talk with our MPD 5th Precinct staff about community safety, explore the inside of a USPS mail truck, share what equity in Armatage means to you, make an Armatage button, weigh in on the neighborhood Bylaws & Funding Plan, and lots more.

Plus, Sparrow Cafe and Thumbs Cookies will both be on-site with treats! 🙂

School Supply Drive

We are also holding a school supply drive for Armatage Elementary during the event. Check out the school’s wish list here and bring items to donate to get entered to win a door prize, one of which is a Ring doorbell.

Covid-19 Safety

Please plan to wear a mask and distance when you’re able at the event. Stay home if you’re experiencing any symptoms, were recently exposed to someone who has COVID-19 or are waiting on a COVID-19 test. Thanks for keeping our helpers, neighbors, staff and volunteers safe!

Hosted by the Safety, Equity & Outreach Committee. In case of severe weather, we’ll post cancellations on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
